raised of £10,000 target by 86 supporters

Weʼre raising £10,000 to fund "Kate's Place" - a community greenspace and wildlife garden in memory of Kate Jury

Don't have time to donate right now?


Kate was hugely active in the community – supporting people, designing and creating beautiful spaces and connecting people with Nature. Her ground breaking work with Young Unaccompanied Asylum Seekers at Barracks Lane Community Garden (the Heritage of Common Plants) and at NaturEscape Florence Park are testament to her care and passion for people, plants, creatures and simply for life! You can read about some of this on the website of the The Nature Effect CIC where Kate was also a Director.

You can read more about Kate's life and work here.

Friends and Family would like the NaturEscape at Florence Park to become a permanent legacy to Kate’s work. The City Council have agreed to renaming this wildlife garden 'Kate’s Place'. It is used used by many community groups. You can read more about it here.

We are looking to raise between £5K and £20K as a legacy fund to:

- Upgrade the pond

- Improve the pathway for accessibility and to tell a story of the site

- A new commemorative bench

- Create some Bug hotels to encourage biodiversity on the site

- Commission new signage to include a plaque for Kate. ‘Kate’s Place’

For more information and design ideas about each of these, please click here.

You can support by donating on this page. You will be invited to attend a celebration event and planting in the Spring of 2024.
